NEW Crow's Peak Chairlift

The new Crow's Peak chairlift is OPEN, providing skiers & riders with lift-serviced access to the previously hike-to terrain of Strawberry Fields and some of the finest tree skiing in the region. The lift spans 1,000 vertical feet over advanced-intermediate and expert terrain, including steeps, chutes, glades, and 2 new top-to-bottom groomer runs that will be nothing short of awesome.

For a video on the tower installation, click here.

While most the natural terrain was in fact open to hikers, skiers had to make a right turn very early in order to make the traverse back to Disney. Now, it's true fall line, top to bottom vertical for much more terrain and way more vertical.

Working in close conjunction with the US Forest Service to improve sustainability for the White Spruce, this newly gladed skiing is going to be incredible, truly great turns through perfectly spaced stands.

The fixed-grip triple is protected from the elements so it will run on inclement weather days, and the general ops plan is to have this lift spinning daily at 9:00 am (weather & conditions permitting, obviously). Every attention was paid toward minimal environmental impact during install, including hiking in daily, use of a spider hoe directly on the lift line, and heli-assist for minimal ground impact overall.

A HUGE addition for Sugar Bowl skiers & riders and we can't wait to ride it with you this season...see you up here soon!

(Donner Summit, Calif.) – Sugar Bowl Resort will install a new chair lift this summer, improving lift-serviced access to advanced and expert terrain on the west side of the resort. The Crow’s Peak chairlift, a fixed-grip Doppelmayr triple, will provide lift-serviced skiing & riding in the Strawberry Fields area of the mountain, just below the Crow’s Nest Peak. Currently hike-to terrain accessed from the Disney Express Chair, the new Crow’s Peak chair will greatly improve fall line skiing, increasing the overall terrain and vertical for skiers to enjoy. With approval from the United States Forest Service in place as of last week, installation of the new chairlift will begin immediately, ready for skiers & riders to enjoy during the 2013/14 ski season.

With a total project cost of $3 million, Sugar Bowl continues to make significant capital improvements to the resort, both on-mountain and around the base area. Sugar Bowl recently acquired Royal Gorge, North America’s largest cross country ski resort, bringing multiple XC ski trails directly into America's only snowbound village, at the foot of the mountain. The new lift's bottom terminal will be located just above Royal Gorge’s Van Norden Meadow, physically bringing the two resorts closer together. At nearly 1,000 vertical feet, the new lift will run to the top of Crow's Nest Peak, with the top terminal located just looker's left of the peak itself. The terrain enhancements will include two new groomed runs, excellent tree skiing through glades, chutes and cliffs, and also provide a wind-protected area on those inclement weather days.

2013/14 Sugar Bowl season passes are on sale now starting at just $299, with dual-resort Sugar Bowl/Royal Gorge season passes starting at just $449. For more information, visit or
